Hackney Residents, Click Here For Access Information on Festival Day!
With non-stop entertainment and your best mates by your side, the Hackney 5.5K celebrates togetherness and ups the ante on typical 5Ks. We're all about 110% effort, so we'll be supporting you and your friends through this 110% distance and even provide a delightfully red-hot surprise toward the finish.
Looking to join the festivities of Virgin Sport Hackney but not quite ready to take on 13.1 miles? Perhaps you're looking to shake it out on a shorter and sweeter course after conquering the London Marathon? Whatever the case, we've got your back. Round up a mate or three (or ten) and chase, race, or pace each other through a lively course that is anything but ordinary.
Purchase one 5.5K ticket and get one for a friend, because team work makes the dream work.
Add the 2 for 1 package to your basket to receive two passes, one for you and one for a mate. To sign up your mate select 'mate' on the ticket form for one of the tickets in the checkout process — make sure you’ve got all their personal details. You’ll need them in order to complete your purchase, and your mate will receive an email to claim their ticket after you've completed the purchase.
